They haven't upgraded the sound in any significant way that privilege seems reserved for Tapestry, but the sound is still more than passable, and the pairing does capture two diverse sides of King's solo work. Music was an extraordinarily good album, quite unexpectedly a match for Tapestry, and had it not followed that album it could just as easily have defined King's career and solo persona; but it never enjoyed the earlier album's mystique or mega-sales; Fantasy had a much more lush, produced sound, rooted in soul music to a surprising degree and also offering more prominent instrumental work than any record since her solo debut, Writer.
